The Donegal Road Safety Working Group (DRSWG) is appealing to everyone attending the Joule Donegal International Rally this weekend to stay safe on the roads and to be respectful of everyone using the roads.This appeal comes as rally organisers join forces with Donegal Joint Policing Committee and An Garda Síochána to encourage all those attending the rally to ‘Respect the Rally’ and comply with a few simple rules.These are to drive safely & respect other road users; never drink and drive; respect residents; keep noise levels down at all times; keep the race in its place and; take your litter home. Brian O’Donnell, Road Safety Officer said the DRSWG is committed to promoting road safety.He said “Large numbers will arrive in Donegal to attend the rally and also to enjoy everything Donegal has to offer and we want to emphasise the importance of safety, both on the rally course and on the public roads.“Followers of the rally need to be reminded to watch the stages from safety areas, always stay within the speed limits and drive at a speed appropriate to the weather conditions and allow plenty of time to arrive safely at your destination.“Unfortunately there are also those who drive dangerously and who have no interest in the rally and are only intent in causing trouble for the Gardai and ordinary members of the public who use the roads. We would appeal to everyone attending the rally, that safety on our roads is paramount and should always takes precedence above everything else. Please, keep the race in its place”. Keep the Race in its place – that’s the message being promoted by Donegal Road Safety Working Group and the Donegal Joint Policing Committee for this weeks Joule Donegal International Rally.

Our objective is to have a weekend where there are no fatal or serious injury collisions. We will be testing drivers for drink and drug driving and finally I would ask everyone using the roads not to speed, never to use a mobile phone while driving, always wear a seatbelt and never drink or drug drive.”Cllr Gerry McMonagle Chair of the Donegal Joint Policing Committee is looking forward to welcoming rally enthusiasts to Donegal saying that “these messages are about making sure that the rally can be enjoyed by spectators and locals in a safe and respectful way”.“This rally is unique to Donegal and is the only 3-day tarmac rally in Ireland and the UK. The rally organisers do a great job year in year out organising this top class event and we in the Joint Policing Committee and Donegal County Council want to lend our support to them by helping to share a few simple messages so that the rally can be thoroughly enjoyed by visitors and locals alike.”Road group pleas with rally fans to respect the roads was last modified: June 18th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGardaiRallytrespectROADSWarning

Rain continued to be spotty providing little relief to crops, according to Cheryl Turner, State Statistician,USDA, NASS, Ohio Field Office. There were 5.7 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending July 29. Crops continued to look good but will need some water soon. Corn and soybean condition was mostly good to excellent but showed some signs of stress. Hay making continued to progress well in dry weather. Winter wheat harvest and other hay first cut ting was complete. Manure hauling, spraying of fungicides and herbicides, and weed control activities kept farmers busy last week.Click here for the complete report
What if I told you that the most popular sports documentary franchise follows a formula and style that is as instantly recognizable as it easily recreatable?All images via ESPNThis is the story of ESPN’s acclaimed 30 for 30 series and how you too can achieve documentary greatness. Find RedemptionRelationships which were introduced then ignored at the documentary’s beginning are now given a chance to develop. A particularly poignant report sums up the subject’s highs and lows with as a folksy lesson which we should all learn from. Now, things are looking up.The athlete is at peace with his or her better-for-worse legacy and their role in sports culture’s collective consciousness. They find time to give back to the people and the community which supported them in the first place — and we fade out looking forward to the next generation of sports documentary legends. Establish a SettingWe travel back to 1970s Marlborough, Massachusetts where a young Bill Simmons is born to a local school administrator and doctor. Retrograded stock footage is edited together with personal home video snippets to create a scene and establish a nostalgic connection with the documentary’s subject.Simmons, a precarious youth who quickly fell in love with sports and stories, would grow up to become a prominent sports journalist with ESPN — where a small idea for a television series would change the face of sports documentaries forever. Create ConflictIcons of achievements, celebrations, and excesses are built up in the edit at a pace that leads to an inevitable crash. Interviewees suddenly have nothing to say; long pauses are awkwardly held on screen only to be summed up with a sigh. Seldom-seen footage from broadcast reels show the characters differently than the spotlight usually captured.Present-day footage reveals has-been subjects revisiting the spots of their glory days, staring with watery eyes at empty seats. Build a CharacterWith smart, staccato interview soundbites, we piece together a narrative about the documentary’s subject as told by the friends, family, and local sports journalists of the era.A narration, either by voice over or text on black screen slates, gives context to archival sports footage, often heavily edited and enhanced to focus on the athletes’ blurry faces looking to develop deep expressions. Magazine and promotional photos whip-zoom across the screen to show the heights of success. What’s your favorite 30 for 30 style trope? Let us know in the comments.
